The Holiday Tractor Parade has been drawing larger crowds year after year since the first event. The novelty of tractors strung up with Christmas lights is both amazing and impressive to those who don’t regularly experience what life in Winters is like.
In efforts to help avoid overcrowding in the downtown area, the event has been split in two events. The following is a listing of road closures approved by the Winters City Council for the weekend of Dec. 3–4.
Dec. 3 Winters Wonderland Road Closures:
Main Street will be closed from Railroad Avenue to the Rotary Park parking entrance.
Dec. 4 Holiday Tractor Parade Road Closures:
Main Street will be closed from Grant Avenue to Elliott Street beginning at 4 p.m. The road closures are expected to reopen as soon as the tractors have passed.
Cross streets along the parade route on Main Street from Emery Street to First Street will be closed for tractor staging with the exception of a detour route along Fourth Street.
Cars that remain on the designated no parking zones following the road closure time will be towed.
Overflow parking is designated at 1 PG&E Lane. Rotating shuttles will transport visitors from the parking lot to Downtown Winters stops at the City Park and at Winters City Hall.
Paid parking lots will be available at the Mariani Nut parking lot on Railroad Avenue.
